Kitchen Appliances And Energy Usage

One of the first things a potential homeowner looks for in a kitchen is the type of appliances currently installed. Homeowners are looking for high quality, current appliances within a given kitchen. If you are installing new appliances within your kitchen, there are several things to take into consideration, including:

- Whether they are energy star rated or not. The rating will provide an estimated energy cost for the appliance on an annual basis.

- What type of warranty is offered with the appliances? Is there an extended warranty available in addition to the standard warranty? What does the warranty cover and what is excluded?

- How user friendly are the appliances? What gadgets will you utilize on a regular basis versus which are extra and not necessary?

- What finishes do the appliances come in? Colors, stainless steel, black or white are the most common choices. In today's market, most homeowners are looking for the higher end, stainless steel options when available. Appliances are a long term investment in your home, so be sure to select not only the best for your given needs, but those which will hold their value and assist with the resale of your property in the future.
